Aklia Chinn began designing and crafting custom jewelry over 20 years ago because she wasnâ€™t finding affordable, quality pieces that spoke to her and moved her. She built her clientele by traveling throughout Hollywood and dealing her jewelry direct. She opened her first location after 7 years of selling by appointment and her Hollywood store recently celebrated its 15th year in business. In addition to the jewelry she designs, Aklia also fills her store with antique jewelry and found objects from around the world. Her passion for materials, color and texture manifests itself throughout her designs and her store.
